What is the Initial Confirmation amount?
After you have selected your trip, you have an options to make partial payment depending upon what you have selected (Ferry/Package/Hotel/Activity.) Since Andaman Islands is a hot spot for tourism we have faced multiple scenarios when the rooms are not available or the tickets are not available and many other things. To avoid such scenarios you pay only the partial amount and we go through various aspects of your trip before giving the confirmation. Post confirmation you should proceed to make the payment in instalments. Please note that, if you are making a payment through credit card system then the transaction charges charged by the Payment gateway will be applicable. Other options to make payment can be through bank transfer which is same amount as mentioned in My trip.
